The Iconfactory, developer of the popular free Twitterrific app for Twitter, Ramp Champ, Frenzic and others, has released a version of its music-pausing app, Take Five, for the Mac. Take Five for iOS first debuted in October, bringing a unique utility for music listeners to the App Store.
Like its iOS counterpart, Take Five will pause music playing through iTunes and then resume playback after 5 minutes (or a shorter or longer duration you select), allowing time for you to take a phone call or other short interruption.
Life is full of interruptions. How many times have you realized that your headphones are silent because you’d forgotten to un-pause iTunes? Take Five is a simple utility that automatically fades your music back in after 5 minutes.
Take Five can be activated via its dock icon or through an icon in the Mac OS task bar. The following dialogues are shown when its task bar icon is clicked and Take Five is activated:
Users can define keyboard shortcuts to control the timer, play/pause music, and more.
Take Five is currently on sale at a special introductory price of $1.99, which is 50% off its full price. You can check out the iOS version of the app here.
